In the joint lecture series "Sustainable Building" organised by the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam and the Brandenburg Chamber of Architects, architect Jörg Finkbeiner will present the topic "The cradle to cradle principle – The reused building materials of the future".

For a climate-adapted and resource-conserving use of raw materials, their utilisation after use must also be at the centre of sustainable decisions. The cradle to cradle principle pursues this approach by thinking in technical and biological cycles in order to avoid wasting precious resources.

Andreas Rieger (President of the Brandenburg Chamber of Architects), Dr.- Ing.Nina Pawlicki (TU Berlin), Julius Schäufele (Concular) and Sophie Littmann (FHP).
